Our Week In Music: New Music, Spring Playlists, & Resources to Stop Anti-Asian Violence

In case you couldn’t keep up with the musicians, bands, and artists we’ve been throwing at you all week, here’s a quick recap …

Podcasts

This week, on The Music Meetup, host Elena Childers featured the brand new self-titled album from indie-pop trio Phoneboy & a chat they had a few weeks prior. They’re catchy, fun, and you’re gonna love them.

 

For BTR Live Studio (at Home), host Bryan Bruchman chatted with A Day Without Love—the musical project of Philadelphia-based artist Brian Walker. For this episode, A Day Without Love delivered a raw, solo performance and had a great conversation with Brushman about his music and work.

 

This week’s Subliminal Inevitable did a spring special spinning artists who are from past featured labels.

 

Plus, another new BTR Live Studio (At-Home) host Crazy DJ Bazarro chatted with John Jigg$ from Long Island, Ny. Despite the pandemic, Jigg$ has not let quarantine end his hustle by staying home. He has been hitting the hip-hop circuit hard. Performing in his home city, and anywhere from Atlanta to New Orleans.

 

Finally, our Top Artist of the Week was Mo Douglas! Our hosts spun his album, Society Women Go Slumming (Ten Dollar Recording Co.) the most this week!

Editorial

We kicked the week off strong with a playlist and list of Anti-Asian Violence resources. It’s frustrating to see racism in our everyday lives. Some of it is creeping, insidious, systemic; some of it is blatant and violent. But all of it needs to be combated. We fight the good fight with music and educational sites!

 

We then had a music video premiere for Kira Metcliff. The video for “Hoax” came out to be an epic rock ‘n’ roll cabaret pumped with adrenaline.

 

We also premiered the sophomore EP for the band Hey, ily entitled Internet Breath. It’s a catchy album that bursts with 21st-century anthems and taps into every genre.

 

And, our last premiere of the week was an animated music video from true blue rockers Gamblers. It was a brightly colored video of the trio with lyrics reverberating all around them.
